guest: sure, if mitch mcconnell couldn't lose, he wouldn't have raised gazillions of dollars, of course. i don't think mcconnell -- if he were to lose, i don't think it would be because he's a republican, because he's a conservative. i think he would -- if he were to lose, it's because people -- there's just a slice of people who would have voted against any congressional leader that's up this year. and that layered on top of whatever the democratic vote is, if he's over 50, he loses, under 50, he wins. no, it's a very, very, very competitive race. he's got a dicy situation having to maneuver with the tea party guy on the right and a strong general election opponent on the left. >> virginia politic, a state that has become purple, correct? >> absolutely. >> what's at stake? this is the paper on the editorial pages in the last 20 plus years endorsed the republican candidates for governor, did zmot this year. none of the above, why?
